Running M.A.N. WW1 diesel egine at 375 RPM producing 430 HP. This is a world war 1 U-boat engine build in 1917 by Blom & Voss in Hamburg to operate in a german submarine. However this engine never made it into a U-boat as the war was running to an end. The engine was stored en transfered to Holland during World War 2 to operate as a generator egine in a water supplying company where it was producing power up to the 1960's. It's a four stroke engine with six cilinders and a overhead camshaft. The exhaust valves are water cooled. Attached to the engine is a four step, high pressure air compressor which provides about 80 Atm neccesary for the diesel injection as common fuel pomps where not developed yet.
